    Hey, you've been sending guns to every other bunch of criminals in Latin America for decades. Why stop at the Venezuelan coup organisers?

    Only to those fighting Socialist. We won't to Venezuela because, one, were broke and two, we have a worthless socialist dickhead in the white house at the moment.

    I think you've got more than a few million arms to spare your right-wing death squad buddies, and I don't think it would require anyone to seek the permission of the C-in-C before shipping them off. You can always get around stuff like that. Remember the Iran-Contra affair?

    It is always refreshing to hear from a hard core anti American.

    I was expressing my disdain for those who would have the US behave in the way it has behaved badly in the past. I don't believe the US will arm the right-wing Venezuelan conspirators this time around. I'm not anti-American, just anti-American imperialists. Fortunately they are few in number, DVSentinel happens to be one of them.

    That was the C-in-C getting around congress.

    Like the good old days?

    Still, I think the CIA has their feet up on the table with this one.

    So those protesting the Venezuelan autocrat are criminals? You've got to stop reading the Guardian. Meanwhile, what will be your reaction when the Russians, in the interest of ending the suffering in the Ukraine, decide to visit that country in numbers in their favorite vehicle for visiting their neighbors - the Tank? I'm guessing the silence will be deafening from the European left. As usual.

    You got that right. They failed their coup in 2002 so why not try again? Hopefully, they'll install a very wealthy and sympathetic business elite in power again.
